The future of RP shrimp industry lies in Palawan
MetadataShow full item record
The country's shrimp production continues to be sluggish due to shrimp diseases brought about by widespread infection by the luminescent bacteria. Quoting data from the Bureau of Agricultural Statistics (BAS), shrimp expert Fred Yap of the Aquafarming Development Foundation, Inc., reports that the Philippines at its peak in 1993 produces 95,816 metric tons of shrimp, mostly the giant tiger prawns. But by 1997, the country's production decreased to 41,610 metric tons.
